ASUS EKWB GeForce RTX 3080 Ampere Graphics Card
Let it Flow Prepare yourself for an unforgettable gaming experience with the ASUS EKWB GeForce RTX 3080 10GB Graphics card. These ASUS GeForce RTX 3080 cards are the result of collaborative engineering efforts between ASUS and EK®, and delivers the unprecedented performance that gamers crave for 4K resolution gaming, powered by the NVIDIA Ampere architecture. It's built with enhanced RT Cores and Tensor Cores, new streaming multiprocessors, and super-fast 10GB of GDDR6X memory for an amazing gaming experience. ASUS Auto-Extreme Technology, along with a metal backplate and customised steel mounting bracket, create a durable foundation for EK®'s full-coverage water block. The entire package takes up just a single slot, bringing the tangible benefits of water cooling to small form factor builds, heavyweight workstations, and showcase rigs Combined with the next generation of design, cooling, and ASUS' GeForce RTX 3080 Series presents a new definition in ultimate performance.
Designed with a Protective Backplate
that's so metal! The ASUS EKWB GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card is newly designed with PCB that is reinforced by an aluminium backplate that adds structural rigidity, helping to prevent flex and protect components and trace pathways from damage.
A High-Performance Water Block
Go with the flow A central inlet split-flow cooling engine designed by EK® channels coolant over the GPU and other key components without restricting flow. The design efficiently dispatches large thermal loads and saves prized slot space. * For reference only.
Outshine the Competition and Add Style to your Build
Aura Sync The ASUS EKWB graphics card features an addressable RGB strip that spans the length of the block. Armoury Crate software allows complete control and customisation of the lighting colours and effects. Build with other Aura Sync components to enable uniform lighting across your entire setup.
There's so much room! A compact single-slot design increases compatibility with other PCIe peripherals and even allows multiple ASUS EKWB cards to be stacked in a system.
A feat of engineering A nickel-plated copper cold plate prevents oxidation and ensures efficient heat transfer. On top, the cast acrylic cover makes a spectacle of coolant as it courses over the GPU and other components. High-quality EPDM O-rings and brass standoffs are arranged throughout to ensure proper sealing and an easy installation.
Stainless Steel Bracket
Steel yourself The mounting bracket of the ASUS EKWB has been beefed up with 304 Stainless Steel that's harder and more resistant to corrosion.
Precision Automated Manufacturing
Auto-Extreme TechnologyAuto-Extreme Technology is an automated manufacturing process that sets new standards in the industry by allowing all soldering to be completed in a single pass. This reduces thermal strain on components and avoids the use of harsh cleaning chemicals, resulting in less environmental impact, lower manufacturing power consumption, and a more reliable product overall.
GPU Tweak II Software
Monitor, Tweak and Tune ASUS utility takes graphics card tuning to the next level, as it allows you to tweak critical parameters including GPU core clocks, memory frequency, and voltage settings, with the option to monitor everything in real-time through a customizable on-screen display. Advanced fan control is also included along with many more features to help you get the most out of your graphics card.

DirectX Raytracing Allows Incredibly Realistic Graphic Effects
DirectX 12 Ultimate offers features like ray tracing and variable rate shading
DirectX Raytracing allows games to simulate how light works in real life, providing incredibly realistic and beautiful graphics effects like global illumination, reflections, and shadows.
NVIDIA has partnered closely with Microsoft to enable full DXR support on GeForce GPUs. GeForce RTX GPUs were designed from the start for the extreme demands of ray-tracing workloads. Specialised RT cores, found only on GeForce RTX graphics cards, provide billions of rays per second of performance, and up to 3X the frame rates with DXR games and applications. This makes ray tracing at real-time frame rates possible for the first time.
